Google launches YouTube series to make Maps more wheelchair-friendly
Internet giant Google has started a campaign aimed at making their popular navigation app Maps more friendly for people who are physically disabled.
The company is calling on its Local Guides community to join the effort and add more wheelchair accessibility attributes to Maps.
Google says that if each of its tens of millions guides answers three questions every day, they will have over two billion answers to help people who depend on this information.
Anyone interested in contributing to the effort can follow these steps:
*Make sure your Location History is turned on
*Head to Your Contributions in the upper-left menu
*Indicate whether the places you’ve visited are wheelchair-friendly
Google is also hosting a series of Local Guides meetups around the globe to further encourage people to support this initiative.
